By Mail: Most households received their invitation to respond to the 2020 Census in March. These official Census Bureau mailings included detailed information and a Census ID for completing the census online. In mid-April, the Census Bureau began mailing paper questionnaires to homes that have not yet responded online or by phone. Learn more about responding by mail.

What is the Census?

Every 10 years, the U.S.Census Bureau conducts a census to determine the number of people living in the United States. This census provides the basis for reapportioning Congressional seats and distributing billions of dollars in federal funding to support services and infrastructure in communities across the country.

Aventura encourages every resident to participate in the census to ensure proper representation in Congress and a fair share of federal funds for local services, infrastructures, schools, hospitals, roads, public works, and other vital programs.

Taking the census is safe and easy. Your data is confidential and protected by federal law. Your answers can only be used to produce statistics. By law, your information cannot be shared with immigration enforcement agencies, law enforcement agencies, or be used to determine your eligibility for government benefits. The Census Bureau protects information that identifies respondents or their households for 72 years. The questionnaire contains a few simple questions and only takes a few minutes to complete. This year, people will have the opportunity to complete the census online, making it easier than ever to participate. Get informed and be ready. Aventura and the County are counting on you.

Spreading the Word to Shape Your Future

With the assistance of the Aventura Census 2020 Complete Count Committee, the City is planning outreach efforts throughout the coming year to encourage all residents to participate in the Census. The Committee’s members are instrumental in creating awareness in the community and have a strong commitment to motivating City residents to participate in the Census.
